With the help of our wonderful partner organizations, we are happy announce the launch of the official Openly Secular website. This is a big first step in the mission to eliminate discrimination and increase acceptance by getting secular people – including atheists, freethinkers, agnostics, humanists and nonreligious people – to be open about their beliefs.
Discrimination is rampant against those who are secular. Teens are made homeless after being thrown out of their homes; young activists receive death threats; people lose relationships with friends, family, and coworkers for not believing the same. A 2014 Pew research study, for example, showed 53% of people would be less likely to vote for someone who does not believe in God.
We are collecting stories of discrimination from atheists, agnostics, humanists and secularists. If you’ve been a victim of discrimination in your life, SHARE YOUR STORY and make your voice heard!
